Unformatted text preview: Fluid Transport Practice Problems John McRaven Figure 1: This pipe will be used for all the problems Figure 1 will be used for the following problems. The section between M- O has resistance, and the section between Q-S has resistance. The resistance is not necessarily the same. The rest of the pipe has no resistance. Points E and H are open to atmosphere. The main fluid is water, with a density of 1000 kg/m 3 and the fluid be- tween D and E is oil, with a density of 860 kg/m 3 . 1 Everything is to scale, EXCEPT the vertical tubes (H and E). The cross sectional area of the pipe is square at every point. So, if W is the width of the pipe at some point, the area at that point, A will be A = W 2 . The widths are to scale, but here are some of the numbers just to help: W A = 1 . 5 m W B = W D = W E = W F = W G = W H = W J = W L = W Q = W R = W S = W T = 1 m W K = . 5 m W C = W I = 2 . 5 m W M = W N = W O = 3 m W P = 2 m It is a very complicated fluid circuit, but in most cases I will try to break...
